Colin Marsden is well known as the compiler of the highly successful abc Rail Guide; the annual comprehensive and reliable guide to the railway networks of the British Isles. This guide has always contained information on light rail, tramways and heritage lines but such is the growth in this area that it was decided a book focusing solely on these was required.
abc Light Rail Guide 2019 is the outcome. It includes expanded coverage and more illustrations of the UK’s Light Rail systems, numbers and data for all London Underground lines and stock, both tube and surface lines, coverage of steam and modern traction preservation with details of all preserved railways and museum sites, giving names, addresses and sat nav codes, tables listing the numbers and names of all preserved steam and modern traction locomotives and multiple units together with their locations and details of preserved traction authorised to operate on the national network.
This welcome addition to Crecy’s abc range of reference books, an accurate, portable and heavily illustrated guide to these fascinating areas of our transport infrastructure and heritage, will be welcomed by all railway, light rail and tramway enthusiasts.
